Mahsa also makes another point in her talk that is very important.

She mentions that we can't just tell Iranians to move away from using Telegram because it is as much a social and cultural phenomenon as much it is a technical one.

She says that we should focus on making Telegram better and that Telegram should be more proactive rather than reactive to human rights issues.

Only two more hours and I get to go on vacation!
